ELIJAH AND THE PROPHETS OF

tlio rlKlttooua. Frov. 15:23 11. V.
Following tho lesson of last week

account' of Ahab'H search for Elijah

verity of tho drought In tho land.
Ahnb'u accusation, "Art thou ho that
trouhloth Israel," Is replied to by Eli
jah's challenge regarding u contest bo
tween hltnsoir, tho representative of
Jehovah, and tho king's prophets roi
resenting Uaal, (vv. 17-25). In accord
mice with tho stipulations tho prophots
of Uaal uccopted tho challengo and
moat miserably failed (vv. 2C-2U). Tho

might tho moro clearly unmask their
error and mnko moro signal their do

Injury continued fruitlessly until 3:00
p. m. Then Elijah announces tho de
tails which were to removo ull posslblu
doubt as to whoso champion ho wus or
who Is to answor his petition, (a) Ho
calls tho pooplo together (v. 30) draw
ing Uicm nigh to God and challenging
their undivided attention after tho con
fusion produced by tho priests and
their consternation over their dofeat.
(b) Ho constructs tho altar (vv.
30-31). Any truo and lasting reforma
tion must Login at tho altars of God.
Restore ono in tho heart, tho homo
and church and there will return to
all unity and strength. Note Elijah's
Insistence upon an undivided nation,
as suggestod by tho "twolvo stones."
Whtlo any lasting reformation must
begin In tho individual heart, still it
it la true and gcnulno it will work it
self out in tho nation. "Israel shall bo
thy namo." Tho "princo that prevails
with God," who had wrought for tholr
fathers, who answered Jacob's prayer,
Is now about to answer Elijah. This
altar was not constructed as a monu
ment to doparted ono, nor for tho or
namentation of tho houso of God. It
was in God'a first cathedral and for
his glory alone. On this altar Elijah
placed his sacrifice
Again Israel is to prevail ovor its
enemies, this tlmo thoso within, not
those from without, (e) Ho covorcd
tho nlUir (vv. 33,34) o. g., poured wa
ter upon It to removo all possible ac
cusation of fraud or trickery. Tho
trench "as greut as would contain two
measures of Beed" (v. 32) is equivalent
to six gallons. Three times water was
taken from tho spring, still flowing
at this placo, and poured upon tho
altar, twelvo jars in all again symbol
izing tho twolvo tribes.
II. Elijah's Prayer, vv, 36,37. Tho
great prophet oven could only secure
through prayer his desired blessing
though ito purpose was "that this peo
plo may know that thou Lord art God."
His prnyor was: (a) Addressed to
God; (b) Grouudcd upon oxperlenco,
that of "Abraham, Isaac and Jacob;"
(o) It was for ono purpose, tho honor
of that namo; (d) It was to sanction
his act in calling forth tho drought
upon Israel au a punishment for tho
sins of princes, priests and people;
(o) It was founded upon tho word of
Jehovah, to corroborate nnd to affirm
tho works dono "ut thy word;' (f) It
was for tho conversion of tho pooplo,
that tholr hearts might bo turned back
to Jehovah onco more.
Elijah, tho man of faith, staked his
all upon tho Word of God, ho gnvo
himself up wholly to tho plans and
purposed of God, and relied explicitly
upon tho covenant-keeping God.
III. God's Power, vv. 38-40. Wo nro
conlldont Elijah had never seen tiro
fall and that ho must havo realized
tho awful catastropho Involved If it
did not fall. Yet ho fearlessly makes
nis pica and tho flro foil. It was not
an accidental stroke of lightning. God,
tho creator, worked upon tho laws of
nature, his Borvant, and wrought con
fusion to his enemies. It would bo a
strange God and father who could not
uso his own laws and creation to pro
duce a moral effect.
Tho abundanco of proof was that
not only tho offering, but tho water
and tho very Btones of tho altar wore
consumod. Risking all, nil is won.
What wo noed everywhere is mon
who will follow in Elijah's steps in
ordor that tho flro of God may come
upon ub. Thoro remained no longer
any doubt, God Is God, Bnal is a sham.
So thoy "fell on their faces," yet in
splto of tho victories of God men to
day refuso to render unto him like
obcdlcnco and worship.
Compare in Ibis connection tho flro
of God's holy spirit which camo upon
